Courgette And Aubergine Fritters

Published Friday, 31 August, 2012 by Kellie Craig

Spicy bhaji style fritters- delicious!



  • Makes around 10 small fritters
  • 1/2 courgette, grated
  • 1/2 aubergine, finely sliced
  • 1tsp curry powder
  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 75ml water
  • salt and pepper
  • oil for frying


*courgettes and aubergines can hold a lot of water, so once grated and sliced you will need to spread them over kitchen roll to absorb some of the moisture.*

first, make the batter. Mix the flour with the curry powder and season with salt and pepper.

add the water and milk, then mix to form a thick pancake-like batter.

add the courgette and aubergine to the batter and coat well.

for deep frying, you will need about 2cm of oil in a saucepan. Heat the oil on high, but don't let it get smoking! You can test to see if the oil is hot enough by dropping a small amount of batter in the oil- if it sizzles straight away it's ready.

place teaspoon sized amounts of batter into the oil, then fry until golden brown. This will take about 1 minute on each side. Drain on kitchen roll and sprinkle with salt.

great with mango chutney!
